"Interesting analogy," Conway said in response to Bump’s tweet on Tuesday.

“Likewise, what if a CEO routinely made false and misleading statements about himself, the company, and results, and publicly attacked business partners, company 'divisions' (w/ scare quotes!), employees, and analysts, and kowtowed to a dangerous competitor?" Conway, who has a history of taking swipes at his wife’s boss on Twitter, added.

Trump is currently battling claims from Manigault Newman that he is a racist and that there is a tape in which the president can be heard saying the N-word during his time as the star of the “Apprentice.”

Earlier this week, Kellyanne Conway did not explicitly say she told Trump about the alleged tape but later seemed to imply otherwise, saying: "It was my job to tell the president every rumor, innuendo, fact, fiction."

"I've worked alongside Donald Trump for two straight years," she continued. "I've never heard him say anything about that, including about my husband, who has completely denied that he has used a racial epithet."
